Perfume can be transportive. Many niche lines make a living by creating a distinct scent of place in a bottle.
Where would you like to go today courtesy of a fragrance?
What is your dream destination where a scent can take you in a whiff?
Which perfume takes you where you want to go? Even if only in your mind?
I love the ability of perfume to take me away. Whether it is a literal journey to the place a frangrance wants to evoke, or my personal journey of association, the escapist properties of perfume draw me in every time.
Right now I’d love to follow Moon Bloom to a tropical island to escape the snow. But I would just as gladly follow my nose to London where Chanel’s Sycomore – of all things – takes me, since I bought it there it always takes me back.
Where do you want to go on this dreary Monday?
